Iheanacho was in scintillating form as he helped Leicester record a first home win against United since 2014.

The Eagles star was involved in Leicester’s first goal after dispossessing Harry Maguire before squaring to Tielemans to make it 1-1.

Mason Greenwood had opened scoring for United as both teams went into the break all squared.

It was a dramatic end to the game as Soyuncu put Leicester 2-1 up on 78 minutes before Marcus Rashford made it 2-2 on 82 minutes.

Just a minute later Jamie Vardy restored Leicester’s lead right from the restart before Patson Daka scored the fourth goal on 91 minutes.

    Tielemans fully deserved the award. That goal was simply astonishing. Perhaps Nacho could’ve also won if he capped his fine display with a goal. I thought Jarmie Vardy played well too. All-round, Leicester played well. Maddison showed his usual skills and exquisite technique, seems on course to his old self.
    Welldone Nacho, better luck next time.
